Bow Manufacturers / Browning Illusion?

Recommended Posts

bkft

Hey everyone. Just curious about something. I'm not really clear about what company makes which bows. I think Browning and PSE are made by the same company, but not too sure. I've also heard that the parent company of Fred Bear also owns Matthews/Solocam. Is that true?

Also, has anyone shot the Browning Illusion? Any pros/cons?

Thanks in advance!

John

IMO, Browning puts out a quality product. I don't know anything about the Illusion but I have a ballistic mirage that is nearly ten yrs old and has been a great bow for me. One of the things that impressed me with Browning was at that time they offered the widest range of adjustment in a bow. I can't offer anything on your other questions but in todays corporate world it is likely that many different brand name are manufactured under the same roof.

Thanks, Eagle. I currently shoot a Ballistic Mirage, too. It's been a great bow for me. But lately, it seems the deer are knocked over by the sonic boom created at the time of release before the arrow even reaches them...

      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.
